Études’s Spring 2017 collection, shown last June in Paris.In the months since, as Trump has taken to Twitter to dangle threats of war against North Korea’s nuclear-weapons state, those patches look not just popular, but prescient.
They certainly caught my attention, and they’re one reason I’ll be watching the collective’s show from my laptop this weekend. The other? Like OAMC’s Luke Meier did earlier this week, Études’s Aurélien Arbet and Jérémie Egry, who are based in New York and Paris respectively, are adding women’s looks to their men’s show. Their Spring 2018 offering is an ode to Paris, its subway system, and 1980s New Wave.
